The German New Medicine

Important Announcement

Dear Friends; We lost a great man on July 2nd 2017. Dr. Hamer passed away peacefully at his home in Sandefjord, Norway where he lived in exile.

He was an extraordinary man with a brilliant mind. In a short 35 years he managed to understand the cause of all diseases and how to heal from them.

His discovery of “The New Medicine” will change the face of medicine as we know it.

Thank you Geerd for your gift to humanity. Viva La Medicina Sagrada!



Welcome to the Germanic/German New Medicine

In the spirit of the Germanic/German New Medicine, we offer a word of warning. Dr. Hamer’s language and his approach to medicine, disease and the causes of disease may be something of a shock to those of us who are accustomed to modern Western medicine as it has been practiced for the last fifty years.

Laughter is the Best Medicine

It’s fun to share a good laugh, but did you know it can actually improve your health? Learn how to harness the powerful benefits of laughter and humor.

The benefits of laughter

It’s true: laughter is strong medicine. It draws people together in ways that trigger healthy physical and emotional changes in the body. Laughter strengthens your immune system, boosts mood, diminishes pain, and protects you from the damaging effects of stress. Nothing works faster or more dependably to bring your mind and body back into balance than a good laugh. Humor lightens your burdens, inspires hope, connects you to others, and keeps you grounded, focused, and alert. It also helps you release anger and forgive sooner.

With so much power to heal and renew, the ability to laugh easily and frequently is a tremendous resource for surmounting problems, enhancing your relationships, and supporting both physical and emotional health. Best
